Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: GarciaLive Vol. 1 Delay

Used to get JSB tix, as well as some GD tix, through Acacia Scully and Annabelle (sp?) Garcia, back in early to mid-80s (Frost, Greek, etc.) Annabelle used to be fixture outside the Stone shows for awhile. Sure, they were selling tix to make some cash, but mostly it seemed to help some folks get in. And although they had an "inside", I saw no evidence that they were rolling in the dough. Indeed, from some stories I heard (from them and others) no one was really raking it in prior to the Touch of Grey era, when all of the sudden the GD became the most profitable touring act in the world. Anyone recall Hunter's mail-order letter before MSG '87 shows warning about the "cigar smoke" and "muscle"?
